Beautiful Family Portraits at OakView County Park {Raleigh NC Family Photographer}

January 26, 2016  •  1 Comment

Of all the beautiful locations in our area for family portraits, I think Historic Oakview County Park might just be my favorite.  It has so much to offer with it's rich history and amazing natural features.  I love to explore parks and find the hidden areas that are not photographed as often.  This park has so many little spots.  I met this family on a warm summer evening in September and I was so happy that they were able to bring their dogs along.  Their little girl was so well behaved, yet curious and adventurous.  I had so much fun photographing her.  Have you ever seen such blue eyes and adorable curls?

Take a look at this little girl and her new friend.  Can you find him?  She was so interested in that baby toad and she was determined to catch him.  I love how children have such a strong interest in nature.  Oakview County park has some resident goats that children love to visit.  We also saw a snake that evening.  Snakes have never really bothered me, and this little girl didn't mind him either.  I'm sure she would've gone after him if we let her.

Here are a few more family portraits from the evening.  The family dogs seemed very happy to come along.

This photo of the little girl and her dog is my favorite.  She sure loved giving her doggy big hugs.

The cotton fields at Oak View County Park are always fun for children to explore.  Soft yet prickly, such an interesting texture, and I love how it photographs.
